Petition to Google, Inc

Demand Google make user data more secure

After a delayed announcement, Google told the world that their social media service, Google+, had been breached since 2015. A bug potentially allowed the data of nearly 500,000 Google+ users to be collected by third parties. Personal information at risk included users: birthdays, photos, names, occupations, and anything else you could imagine. Shortly after announcing that there was even a hack, they told the world that they would close Google+ services entirely. Google needs to create a company-wide data protection policy, that includes informing users of a hack sooner rather than later. While Google stated that the breach did not impact gmail accounts, or other services they provide; an internal memo at Google said that the company withheld and delayed a public announcement to ‘stay out of the spotlight’. Public image should not be a reason to hide what’s happening to user’s identities. Tell Google to implement transparency measures that would notify users of a breach within 72-hours. This isn’t the first time Google has been lax on security concerns. In September, Google failed to even show up at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on data privacy concerns. Opting instead to submit a short statement about how they are committed to privacy for their users. Back in 2012, Google had to pay out $22.5 million to users after misrepresenting privacy assurances for iPhone Safari browser users, affecting 4.4 million people. In all, Google has already paid $39.5 million in damages involving data breaches in the United States. Google users shouldn’t have to wait years to even find out if they may be affected by a data breach; or sue for compensation after having their identities stolen. People’s digital lives and identities hang in the balance. Google users deserve better accountability and transparency on how their data is used, and if their personal information is being protected by company privacy measures. Tell Google to stop providing lip-service on this issue, implement common sense data breach transparency and security measures.

Petition to US State Department

Ban Downloadable Guns and Plastic Guns

On July 31st, a United States Federal Judge blocked Cody Wilson and his organization, Defense Distributed from releasing their 3D printed gun blueprints. However, the judge did provide Wilson with other options, such as mailing USB drives with the information on them. In addition, Defense Distributed illegally released the blueprints to the public, days before they were scheduled to be granted permission.  3D printed guns are dangerous because they can be made on demand and can bypass security checkpoints undetected. Also, they have no serial number making the guns untraceable. Kids, felons, terrorists, abusers and mentally ill people could all get their hands on an unlimited amount of guns, without a single background check. Safe Nation demands that a bill is passed, stating that all gun blueprints are illegal to be sold in the United States. If you agree, take a minute to sign the petition because every signature counts!  Safe Nation is a student led organization fighting to end gun violence. It was founded in July, 2018 and has been fighting for gun violence ever since. Text @GUNFREE to 810-10 to subscribe to text message updates! REGISTER TO VOTE! Text @FUTURE to 644-33!
